There have been a number of companies that have tried to find the best way possible to use the cloud to their purposes. Kii Corporation is one company that looks to be taking the lead when it comes to using the cloud for Mobile-Backend-as-a-Service (MBaaS). The carrier-grade Kii Cloud service is being used as a turnkey service that now has 25 million end users and an open public beta period that is available to cloud application developers.
Mobile-Backend-as-a-Service technology allows for developers to use embedded cloud services in their applications, but in recent years has mostly led to pre-profitable and small scale endeavors from companies that dwell in the startup field like Parse.com, Kinvey and StackMob. App developers can use a cloud backed to better understand how users of their applications are behaving as well as to determine retention rates. The Kii MBaaS saves app developers hours of hard programming work by giving them a sort of snap-in solution that can be installed in a matter of minutes.
“Our carrier credentials set us apart in the MBaaS space,” Masanari Arai, CEO and co-founder of Kii Corporation said in a statement. “For years, we’ve been working with some of the top carriers in the world on mobile app scalability, reliability and performance. Now, any mobile developer can plug our proven, industrial strength mobile backend into their app.”
The Kii Cloud is a full service cloud that comes with full documentation and a sample code. There are also quite a few complete SDKs. The software also has some dynamic control dashboards that will allow app developers to have better control over what they are actually doing with the Kii Cloud.
Originally, Kii Cloud was only made available to some of the biggest telecommunications companies in the world as well as select application partners in the past. Three hundred percent year-over-year growth in end users convinced the company that they needed to offer their service to a greater community of companies.
